Studying Species By Examining the Evolution of the Canidae Family

For Teachers 9th - 10th
Students read an article on the characteristics of wolves and dogs then complete a phylogenetic tree of the canid family. They then write an essay justifying why or why not wolves and dogs should be classified as different species.
